Dr. Praveen is amazing. He is very patient, kind, spoke to us for almost 15mins after the evaluation, explained all options, pro/cons and recommended what is best for the patient given age and medical history. Having seen other doctors recommended test after test for their own benefit it is very pleasant to see this doctor do the right thing. I would recommend him to anyone without a second thought.

Shanmugam Avudaiyappan

Dr. Praveen treated me for removal of stone in Bladder. Before the surgery he provided detailed explanation of the procedure and ensured all my questions were satisfactorily answered. Post surgery, advice given by Dr. Praveen was elaborate and he was always available to clarify even smallest of the doubts. 2-3 weeks post sugery we had to consultant him again for pain and scans had to be conducted. He stayed back till 9pm to get see scan results and advicing us on next steps. Attention to detail and commitment to well being of patients are rare qualities found in doctors these days and Dr. Praveen masters both!
